Buyers complained about a lack of newness at the trade shows held earlier this month in Manhattan at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center and Pier 94. The three apparel shows were Intermezzo Collections, Moda Manhattan and Fame.
Annette Matczak, owner of Buckingham, Pa.-based boutique Intrigue, who walked all three shows, said, “I had a hard time finding anything new. We need to bring in more newness. I need something to buy that’s not already in her wardrobe. We won’t buy anything. We’ll stick to classics that we know will sell.”
